i have been on-and-off reading irvine welsh's "a decent ride", about a scottish cabbie who makes the sexy with more women than anyone should be able to in one lifetime and not be a porno star. it makes for interesting reading, because most of it's written in how you can imagine scottish speaking(i've never been to scotland, so i don't know. i can only go off of "trainspotting", which is also welsh's work).

the book pretty much is like reading a t.v. show: not much substance, but vaguely entertaining nonetheless.

i much prefer "trainspotting" to this book, but whatever.

I've nearly finished Steinbeck's "East of Eden". That guys is an artistic expression junkie. When I read "Of Mice and Men" I got the impression that he can't (or don't want to) deliver reported speech very well but the said novel kicked me back in the face. Maybe he goes too artistic from time to time but as a whole the style is very memorable.

Just finished "a decent ride". Turns out "a decent ride" is a decent read.
